I tried putting foam strips on the window to stop the draught coming in but they didn’t work very well. Now that it’s colder, it feels like I’m waking up in a tent. The tiny radiator is right by the window and I think the heat just escapes instead of filling up the room.
I don’t like being in my flat (even during the day) because it’s too cold and uncomfortable, even with the heating on. I am a bit nervous to confront the letting agent about this because I already phoned up in August and she told me to buy a thermal curtain. I don’t have the time or energy to chase them up legally but I don’t know if I can cope with another 4 or 5 months of not wanting to be in my own flat.
